WHY CHOOSE TIPS?

Why choose tips 1

Pioneer In Alcohol Safety

Originally introduced in 1982, TIPS On-Premise was developed by professionals in the fields of alcohol abuse, adult education, hospitality, and psychology as a tool to teach servers and bartenders to prevent alcohol abuse among customers. This radical strategy to teach servers and bartenders standard practices for the service of alcohol and how to look for signs of intoxication became the industry standard.

Very soon, TIPS met industry requests for programs tailored to other environments with specific scenes and strategies for those industries. Today, TIPS offers courses specific to On-Premise, Off-Premise, Delivery, Gaming, Concessions, and University.

Whether required by law in your state or not, alcohol server and seller training helps you identify and prevent alcoholic beverages from getting in the hands of minors or intoxicated persons. TIPS is trusted to provide training that goes deeper into situations than just covering regulations or BAC. TIPS develops your "people skills" for handling specific situations and maintain a safe environment.


Why choose tips 2

Robust Training Experience

TIPS is more than any general alcohol safety training available. It's an immersive training experience.

TIPS online courses have an outstanding quality of content, easy-to-understand modules, and helpful reinforcement quizzes. TIPS is designed to empower individuals to use their people skills to positively influence their guests' drinking behavior and to help individuals feel confident to intervene in situations that might be uncomfortable or a safety risk.

All of this to make learning and retaining knowledge about safely selling and serving alcohol as relatable as possible.


Why choose tips 3

The TIPS Advantage

Not only will you learn skills for handing situations, you'll become better at your job and in turn be a more attractive candidate. PLUS TIPS offers you protections:

  • The insurance industry discounts liquor liability premiums up to 25% for TIPS-certified clients.
  • Courts recognize TIPS as the standard for server training programs.
  • Liquor boards mitigate fines and penalties for violators who incorporate TIPS training at their establishments.
  • And hotels, restaurants, and bars across the country reap the benefits of more professional wait staff and more satisfied customers.
